TR Cyprus

Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus (TR Cyprus) follows a registered trademark protection system which is separate and different from the Turkish trademark system.

  • Registered trademark protection system for initially 7 years but can be extended by unlimited number of renewals for periods of 14 years,
  • Service marks are not protected,
  • Separate application is required for each class,
  • Registration after examination and opposition,
  • Absolute and relative grounds for refusal,
  • Publication of applications for 2 months, and
  • Opposition by third parties.
  • The period from filing to registration takes 15-20 months for a straight forward application.
  • The Registrar of the Trade Marks examines all applications with respect to the (i) filing requirements (ii) absolute grounds for refusal or (iii) over the earlier identical or confusingly similar trademark applications/registrations for the goods concerned within 12-18 months.
  • In case of any inconvenience, the Registrar issues a notice of refusal and invites applicant to prepare a response in 2 months. Registrar’s final decision can be further appealed before the court.
  • In the affirmative, it will be published for the opposition of third parties for 2 months in the official gazette.
  • Application will be registered within 2-3 months upon the payment of registration fee provided that no opposition is received.
  • The protection period for a registered trademark is 7 years. Afterwards it should be renewed every 14 years for the extension of protection. 
  • The renewal period of a trademark begins 3 months before the expiration date.
  • Where the renewal fee is not paid in time, the fact is advertised in the Official Gazette by the Registrar of Trade Marks, and the registration may be renewed within 2 months of the date of such advertisement by paying a late registration fee.
  • If the renewal fee is not paid at the expiration of two months from the date of advertisement the trade mark is removed from the Register, but in an appropriate case, e.g. where a third party has not applied for the registration of the mark in his name, it may be restored to the Register by paying the appropriate fee.
